A longtime accuser of former president William J. Clinton slammed Democrats in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday, demanding an FBI investigation into her allegations of sexual assault by the 42nd president.
“It’s not politically advantageous for them to circle around me and support me,” Juanita Broaddrick said. “These are the same people that refused to read my deposition with Ken Starr back in 1999. Not one Democrat would read it. [Chuck] Schumer, [Dianne] Feinstein, [Dick] Durbin—they completely turned their backs on me.”
Broaddrick’s demands come amid the Democrats’ insistence on an FBI investigation into unprovable allegations of sexual misconduct by three women made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“Again, I request the FBI investigate my credible rape allegations against Bill Clinton, in the hope that his ‘perks’, as a Former Pres, can be stripped. It totals millions each year from mine and your tax dollar to support a rapist,” Broaddrick said on Twitter on Saturday.

Broaddrick levied the allegations against Clinton in 1999 as part of Kenneth Star’s independent counsel investigation of sexual misconduct allegations brought forth by Paula Jones
Clinton’s attorney denied the allegations at the time.
“Any allegation that the president assaulted Mrs. Broaddrick more than 20 years ago is absolutely false,” the attorney said. “Beyond that, we’re not going to comment.”
Broaddrick described her alleged rape in depth less than a week after Christine Blasey Ford claimed that Kavanaugh forced himself on her at a high school gathering.
“It scared me to death. After the rape, after he left my room, I thought someone was going to come in to get rid of my body. That’s how I felt,” Broaddrick said. “My lip was swollen twice the size, I couldn’t even cover it up with makeup for three or four days. After it was done, he coldly looked at me and said ‘you’d better put some ice on that.’ I’ll never forget it.”
Broaddrick also claims that she has witnesses, which Ford’s story lacks.
“I have so many witnesses. The lady that was traveling with me found me 30 minutes after the rape, and then I have five other people I told,” she said. “You need something that can link the abuser to the abused. And there was everything to corroborate this rape.”
